The other day, i installed XenServer 6.2 on my new Lenovo ThinkCentre. I thought that would be a great idea since Citrix announced that XenServer is now Open Source.
After the installation was done, i was not able to boot on the new installation of XenServer. After some asking around, i found this solution:
- Boot on the Xenserver installation media
- When you get to the install screen. Type menu.c32 as on the first picture.
- A new screen comes up. Press tab.
- You can now see the string that the menu generate in order to start the installation. Just before the last ’—’, type disable-gpt as the picture below and press enter.
Run through the installation as you always do. After the installation is done XenServer will now boot up.
This issue can be experienced on Lenovo computers and IBM servers.
